“I have never been a big fan of him. I know the entire world is crazy about him and his music, but for me I never thought it was anything special. That’s because I can never really relate to the lyrics of his songs and I am sort of not really into that kind of music,” he says.

However Badshah, says he t he is a big fan of popular American boyband Backstreet Boys. “Ever since I was a kid, I used to listen to Backstreet Boys and their song Get Down (on it) was my favourite song. That’s the song that made me decide very early that I wanted to be a musician,” he quips.

“That’s the kind of music I can relate to. I want to write music based on my life, my past experiences and heartbreaks. That’s why I like to listen to music of Drake or a Kendrick Lamar because that’s what they talk about in their songs and I can relate to it. I know I might offend a lot of his (Eminem) fans but, I just cannot listen to his music and I won’t shy away from saying that,” he adds.
